Multi-award winning chef Heston Blumenthal is planning to launch a new restaurant at Heathrow airport,
Still under wraps, the new restaurant is due to open in June 2014 when Heathrow’s Terminal 2 begins operations. The concept and menu, currently being developed, will showcase Heston’s love for nostalgia and celebrate his pride of all things British.
“This is an incredible project,” Heston said. “There are so many different elements to consider when people are travelling. We want to deliver a broad spectrum of easy to enjoy, familiar dishes, from fish and chips to pizza.”
Heathrow’s retail director Muriel Zingraff-Shariff added: “Our brand new, £2.5bn terminal will not only showcase the best of the UK’s art and engineering talent, but also one of its greatest culinary minds. This new restaurant will certainly introduce a unique and original dimension to the airport eating experience at Heathrow.”
